Oregon State Health Profile

Oregon's State Health Profile includes a broad set of indicators that offer a snapshot of the health of people in our state. This information helps us understand the health of our communities, celebrate and learn from our successes and identify opportunities for improvement. Having common information allows us to build partnerships, gather resources, and decide how to plan actions to address complex health issues.

Health Indicators

Indicators from the State Health Profile are updated annually as stand-alone profiles. Data tables for many of the indicators are also available by ethnicity and race and by CCO service area. Click on the PDF icon in the table below to view indicator profiles and tables.

Please note the information provided in the CCO tables is for residents of the CCO services areas, not for enrollees of individual CCOs. Read more about the ethnicity-race and CCO analyses in the Technical Notes (pdf).
